Drinking the Kool-Aid


What does drinking the Kool-Aid mean today? It signifies that the person in question has given up personal integrity and has succumbed to the prevailing group-think that typifies policymaking today. This person has become "part of the problem, not part of the solution."

What was the "problem"? The sincerely held beliefs of a small group of people who think they are the "bearers" of a uniquely correct view of the world, sought to dominate the foreign policy of the United States in the Bush 43 administration, and succeeded in doing so through a practice of excluding all who disagreed with them. Those they could not drive from government they bullied and undermined until they, too, had drunk from the vat.

Remember all those Wall Street crooks in the 80s who would trot out their rabbis to speak for their sterling character? Remember Marc Rich?

All crooks have religious good sides. Except Hamas. It is their religion that makes them evil.
